Advice for staff

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of new continuous cough and/or fever/high temperature.

Any member of staff who has symptoms must stay at home and call their line manager and, during office hours, call Occupational Health.

To help triage calls to best support all of our staff, please contact the Occupational Health Department either by telephoning extension 5435 and leaving a message including your name and contact number or emailing

The team will aim to return calls and reply to emails by the end of each day.

Up-to-date information for professionals is available at NHS Inform.

Up-to-date advice on self-isolation, social distancing and shielding is available from NHS Inform.

Advice for NHS Golden Jubilee patients

Returning to registered professional practice 

If you left the professional register within the last three years as a Registered Nurse, Midwife, paramedic, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, diagnostic or therapeutic radiographer, biomedical scientist or as a medical practitioner you should soon be receiving a letter from your previous professional regulator that explains you have been placed on a temporary register and can now participate in helping with the care of patients during the present emergency. 

If you are a practitioner and are fully registered but not currently working in NHS Scotland you can participate too.

You will be paid and will be part of a supervised team.
